Winding down with Eubanks & Co.

After a long day sometimes you just need things that help you wind down.
For me its candles, tea and of course my puppies. 
Eubanks & Co. have amazing SOY candles! yes ! 
This one that I have is oatmeal cookie from their baked collection!

  This candle not only smells like homemade cookies but it sounds like actual wood crackling!
I think these would be perfect stocking stuffers. It's never to early to start holiday shopping!
Theses Eubanks & Co. candles come in other scents such as banana nut muffin , berry crumble and vanilla rum cake ( my mom would love that one! )

Tea Time: Q&A

teavana
 Tea..what can I say about tea.. I ♥ you and your all your flavorful goodness! 
but tea from TEAVANA is my favorite ! I love the feeling of when I walk in there I can get my sampling on ! There always so nice in there the only thing I would need is a blanket and a comfy chair!  Christopher actually introduced me to it. He brought the youth berry tea and this darling tea set! I'm so thankful for him and his cuteness!

Home Tour : Living Room

Happy Wednesday !
Interior design is like a second nature to me. I get it from my mom! My mom and I spend hours exploring shops and moving things around the homes. When Christopher and I first moved into our home we used more neutral colors "he was a little afraid of color" but he is SO open to color now! So every time I get the opprotunity to use color I'm there. For the living room makeover I really wanted to do something fun and bright all in all "cheerful"
So of course we went to Home Depot and searched for the perfect color and decided on 
Jamaica Bay (Behr Premium Plus Paint) with pops of GOLD and WHITE.

Curtains: Target
Pillows: Pier 1 and Tuesday Mornings

I love how we have multiple prints and colors but still have key pieces in gold and white. I love it ! Christopher and I are home bodies most of the time so it's nice to have  a bright but cozy space to enjoy with friends and family! Now I'm itching to do the dining room ! Crazy I know but I have so many ideas! I hope you liked a look into our home ♥

Plaid + Leopard



This past year I have become a fan mixing prints more. Plaid and Leopard is a combo that I don't think I would have dared to try last year but fashion is about stepping outside of your comfort zone sometimes. Adding to my plaid and leopard outfit I added a red lip and a felt fedora. These leopard slip ons are one of my fall wardrobe staples that are on repeat !

Easy Fall Snack

Apple Chips
 I wish Christopher and I had a close apple orchard to go and explore this fall season. If you live in AZ and know of one let me know♥  These apple chips are great trust me and REALLY simple to make.  This is perfect for a quick pick me up snack or maybe even serving with some wine and cheese with friends.

Darker Florals


fall style
 Floral prints aren't just for summer. The darker florals in this blouse are perfect for fall. I paired this blouse with a black skirt and my favorite burgundy peep toe booties. I really need to invest in another pair ASAP. The blouse adds a feminine touch that I love and the cotton candy bun is just giving me happy feet. I will be wearing this top on repeat so don't mind me ♥

 Happy Feet See ♥

Skillet Cookie

 One of my favorite things to do is bake. I love it its one of the things I find very therapeutic.
With cooler tempatures the kitchen is where you find me baking away! my PINTEREST is getting lots of recipe love for sure.! I found this recipe for skillet cookies and quickly checked to see if I had everything to make it. I called Christopher at work and said I'm making us a treat tonight he instantly lit up because I mean who doesn't love cookies.

Cast Iron Skillet Cookies

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 tablespoon heavy cream (or milk, half and half...)
lots of chocolate chips
(I use semi-sweet, milk, and dark chocolate)

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. In bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and salt
3. In separate bowl, mix butter and sugars until light and creamed together
4. Add egg, vanilla, and cream and stir to incorporate
5. Combine with flour mixture until well mixed
6. Stir in chocolate chips
7. Press lightly into cast iron skillet
8. Bake about 35-40 minutes or until edges are golden
Don't overbake! Cookies will continue to cook in skillet.

I used 2 individual skillets so needless to say I have a tub of cookie dough that I need to make cookies out of. You know I love my new skillets from World Market so I had to try another recipe this one was simple and great for a night in. I am in need of a new apron mine has seen better days for sure . Are these from world market not cute! 

If you make these let me know what you thought or if you added anything extra like I added coconut in mine♥
 Have a great Friday !
